Inca Digital celebrates 10 years of breaking inkjet records

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

"The future for Inca Digital is very exciting," says Dr Linda Bell, CEO, as the company celebrates its 10th birthday. "Since 2000, when we launched the world's first flat-bed wide-format UV inkjet printer, we have consistently developed ground-breaking and record-breaking printers. That pioneering spirit is still very much at our core and continues to drive our programme of inkjet innovation."

Over the last 10 years Inca has developed a range of market-leading printers, and many of the early models are still in operation today. The first Inca Eagle machine was launched in 2000 and the high-speed Turbo in 2004, setting a new speed benchmark. The Spyder 320 was launched a year later, and in 2007 Inca created a step change with the revolutionary Onset: the world's fastest digital UV flatbed printer capable of production speeds up to 750 sqm/hr equivalent to 155+ full bed sheets an hour. In 2009, this was followed by the Onset S20. The Onsets broke the speed barrier and their ability to produce quality volume graphics quickly and cost-effectively have transformed production environments and users businesses around the world; their impact has become known as the 'Onset Effect'.

The company has grown significantly since 2000 and today an estimated 21 million square metres of material is printed on Inca printers around the world every year.

Looking to the future, Dr Bell says: "We are in great shape and the next 10 years will see a new phase in the company's growth as we continue to move up the curve. We will keep pushing the boundaries of speed and performance of our equipment and work even more closely with our customers to add value, and help them to widen their capabilities and competitiveness. Corporately, we are investing to expand our skills into a broader range of markets by exploring new applications for Inca inkjet and we will continue to develop our international presence and infra-structure."
